I have tried many different programs (Spybot SD, Adaware, trojanhunter, spyware doctor, etc...all in safe mode and not in safe mode) and have tried deleting any reference to msdns in the registry, and still it keeps comeing back...and at some point it consumes 98% cpu while trying to use the system. If anyone has any suggestions or steps I can try, let me know...thank you.
